Mansfield Mayor, Larry Austin was asked by the City Council members to resign at the beginning of Thursday (12/21/2017) night’s meeting after a change in the planned agenda. In a packed City Council hall, the voting public and concerned citizen’s wanted answers, and were heard.
Immediately after the Council voted on the reading of the minutes, and financial reports, Councilman Rick McDaniel asked to approve an amendment of the agenda for “the purpose of the future of the Mayor of Mansfield.” McDaniel approached the council with a prepared letter addressing numerous issues that Mayor Austin has recently been scrutinized for, regarding the water tower, sewer plant, etc.
After McDaniel finished, ALL six members, individually asked Mayor Austin to resign. Austin replied, “Ok, next item on the agenda.”
Following the protocol, the members of the City Council addressed each item of the agenda. Then, the public took their turn in asking questions, including past Mansfield Mayor Glen Hurt, and a mother whose son is suffering from issues resulting from potentially contaminated water.
